If you are pregnant or nursing and you are wanting to keep your diet free of chemicals and pesticides, not only should you think about where your meats and vegetables come from, but you should think about where your butter originates. The only butter available that is truly free of chemicals and pesticides is grass fed butter. The Pesticide Action Network of North American ranked non organic butter as first on the food list for being the most contaminated product that had persistent organic pollutants. These pollutants are toxic and they can stay in your body for years. These pollutants can even pass through breast milk. If you are a pregnant or nursing mother, you should consider removing commercial butters from your diet and adding grass fed butter.
